You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
Wait a minute…
I have been laughing at this for hours now…
In November of last year, the above photo was taken of a 5-month pregnant woman welcoming her husband home after being deployed in Iraq for 12 months.
The picture quickly went viral, and has recently resurfaced on Facebook, with questions and accusations running rampant – how could this woman be 5-months pregnant while her husband had been gone for a year? It’s easy to assume the worst and point fingers and call names, but instead of doing that, why don’t we find out the real story.
The woman in the picture is Kendra Kaplan. In the photo, she is indeed 5-months pregnant. And yes, her husband was deployed over seas for 12 months. But the caption on the photo, which is not original and has been changed to paint Kendra in a bad light, implies that the baby is not the husband’s. Kendra told WISTV that this is simply not true and that the baby, named Tomas, was conceived on her husband’s two-week leave.
Kendra says, ”A lot of babies are conceived on mid-tour. A lot. The husbands come home, they’re home for 2 weeks, and what else are you going to do? You’re gonna make a baby!”
All the bad publicity and nasty comments was enough to make Kendra get a paternity test to prove her point to the world – and to her son (not that she had to prove anything to anybody).
Kendra said that she can tell Tomas that “this is your daddy, there are no ifs ands or buts about it.”
It’s a shame that things can get so twisted simply for the amusement of trolls on the internet.
Kendra, from the bottom of our hearts, we thank your husband and your family for the sacrifices you have made to serve our country. You do not deserve the malicious verbal attacks that you have received.
Moral of this story, don’t be so quick to judge.
Matt: so you’re on, what, three medications and four supplements now?
Matt: do you want a pill carrier like an old lady?
Me: … Maybe.
"Yes, but that’s still a minority! If more women played video games, there would be more reason to have female protagonists!"
